Re: Balance issue or?
I have had the exact same occurrence, only to a lesser degree, and to the left. A lot of times I will take both hands from the bars to snug up my gloves or my helmet strap or something....and the bike will feel like it's starting to lean left, and start drifting left. A small lean always corrects it, and I have never felt like it was 'darting' or anything or that I was not in control. For me, this has happened both with absolutely nothing in any of the luggage and with it in various states of 'full'. It also happens both with and without a passenger. Again....never a dangerous or severe pull....just a gradual inclination to head left. As soon as both hands go back on the bars it assumes a perfectly straight trajectory. Checked the tires and brakes, no uneven wear from side to side.
So far, I have just chalked it up as being another LT idiosyncrasy.
